The show attracts thousands of spectators from around the world each week. Be sure to catch the one hour “barn-dance” for a grand ole time.

Country Music Hall of Fame: Preserving the history of country music, the Country Music Hall of Fame captures historical events and educates its visitors on the culture of the genre. The first three inductees were Jimmie RodgersFred Rose and Hank Williams, but the hall of fame has inducted starts like Garth Brooks, Emmylou Harris, Dolly Parton and many more since.

To Eat:

Nashville is not only known for its great music, but they can cook a fantastic Southern meal and offer up some sweet and syrupy hospitality to go with it.

Loveless Motel and Café: For more than 60 years, the Loveless Motel and Café has been serving locals and tourist some of the best fried chicken and biscuits from scratch that the state has to offer. We recommend their Famous Loveless Country Ham or the Loveless Fried Chicken.

The Pharmacy Burger Parlor and Beer Garden: Home of the “Wurst-Burger”, The Pharmacy offers a wide selection of burgers, beer and chicken.  We recommend checking out the burger counter where you can top off your patty with crazy sides such as beer gravy, beer mustard and maple mustard.

Pancake Pantry: If you enjoy eating pancakes for breakfast and lunch, the Pancake Pantry is your paradise. The menu takes a creative spin on the traditional breakfast meal, leaving you with a plethora of pancake options to choose from. We recommend the Sweet Potato Pancakes for mouthwatering treat.

Jack’s Bar-B-Que: The south is known to curate some of the best Bar-B-Q on the planet and Jack’s Bar-B-Que lives up to this tall reputation. They’ve won a list of awards including the”Best Sauce on the Planet”  in 2004.  We recommend the Tennessee Pork Shoulder, Texas Beef Brisket or Smoked Boston Turkey.
